9 Fit Things to Do in Dallas This February

Run through Deep Ellum in your underwear or take your four-legged best friend for a stroll.
By Ginni Beam |

With a Valentine’s walk with man’s best friend, free yoga on the Carrollton square, and an underwear run, you’ll have plenty of chances to work off all that chocolate this month. Speaking of chocolate …


Hot Chocolate 15k/5k

Hundreds of runners will flock to Fair Park for the return of the Hot Chocolate 15k and 5k races. From M&M and chocolate chip stations along the course to hot cocoa and fondue at the post-race party, there will be plenty of chocolate to drink, drizzle, and dip. The sweetest part: proceeds will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dallas.

Register here.


Women’s Self-Defense Seminar

Equip and empower yourself with a self-defense crash course from Omega CrossFit Plano—no cost, and no membership required. Class is from 7-10 p.m. and features an all-star coaching team (including a black belt jiu-jitsu instructor and a Division 1 All-American wrestler). Bring some girlfriends along for Galentine’s Day bonding and enjoy wine and snacks afterward.

RSVP here.


Yoga on the Square

The city of Carrollton offers a free monthly yoga class on the open lawn of their historic downtown square. This month’s class, led by Yoga Digest’s Pat Fabulous, is open to yogis of all ages and experience levels. Bring your own mat and dress appropriately for the weather, as class is happening whether it rains or shines.

DogFit Pack Walk – My Furry Valentine

Treat the four-legged love of your life to a relaxing Valentine’s group stroll. Both you and your pooch will appreciate the chance to explore the city with a canine-loving community. The walk will be about 3 miles and will begin on the Ronald Kirk Pedestrian Bridge. Pups must be on leashes.

Cupid’s Undie Run

It’s the most fun you’ll ever have raising money for charity—an enormous party at Trees; a short, untimed run; and lots of people in their skivvies. (No banana hammocks, please!) Run alone or on a team to benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation and neurofibromatosis research.
